Indeed it does.

Maybe spambayes isn't finding the .spambayesrc file?  If you put some
sort of garbage in there and then run hammiefilter (I presume that's
what you're using), you should get an error printed out if it finds the
file.  If it doesn't, then you can get the envar BAYESCUSTOMIZE to point
to it (but let us know, because it should find it in ~/).  If it is,
then the problem must lie with the persistent_storage_file option,
